Maybe it’s becoming another year older, or that the weather is becoming warmer. There are some things that I want to start doing for myself. It’s either activities I use to do or stuff I want to try for the first time.
I enjoy reading, but I find it hard to find time to do it. I usually come up with excuses on what I should be doing instead of reading. So, I want to start reading at least 10 to 30 minutes a day. Where I put everything away, escape reality, and just read.
Do more things by myself
I think with my introverted tendencies and being a stubborn Taurus, it is fairly easy for me to go out and do things by myself. I like to shop a lot on my own as well as do other minuscule tasks. Do not get me wrong, I do enjoy being with company, and sometimes it’s better to do stuff with others. However, I want to do more than just shop by myself. Then once I get comfortable, I eventually want to start solo traveling.
Be more active on Social Media/ Blog More
Kind of an odd one, but one thing I am working on is not caring what other people think. I tend to hold back on posting on other social media platforms because I am just so anxious about being perceived by past acquaintances or people I went to school with. One of the things I want to do this summer is create all-new social media accounts, start over, and not care what people think. I just need to hit create an account. As for blogging more, I want to have a schedule a stick to it. Sometimes my lack of posts is due to other things happening in life, but most of the time, it’s me being lazy. So, I am actively working on becoming more organized and setting up a schedule for myself.
Be outside more
When I was in high school, I played tennis and coached the sport throughout the week. I was outside all day, every day. Then in college, when I started working 9 to 5 in the summer, I was lucky if I could get some sun at least one day a week. Fast forward to now, and I just found out I am Vitamin D deficient. So being outside is something I want to do and a thing I need to do to better my health. Whether, it’s going on a walk, playing tennis, or just simply being outside.
Try new things
Overall, I just want to try new things. I tend to stick to something that I am comfortable with and know the outcome of the experience. After not doing anything this past year, I have this urge to get out of my comfort zone and be more spontaneous. Whether it’s trying new food, going new places, or just trying different activities.
These five things that I want to do will not happen overnight. I will slowly implement them into my life and make it more of a lifestyle change rather than a temporary goal. I think it is fun to figure out new tasks to do. It helps you discover more about yourself and what you enjoy.
Is there anything that you want to start doing? Or anything you recently started doing that you enjoy? Let me know! As always, thank you for reading, and make sure you’re taking care of yourself.
